I just finished reading We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. The ending wasn’t quite what I hoped it would be, but the writing and the style were so beautiful, I couldn’t get enough.
I started it in the afternoon, and finished it by the next evening. Without giving anything away, here are some of the passages I liked best.
“IN EUROPE, I vomited into small buckets and brushed my teeth repeatedly with chalky British toothpaste. I lay prone on the bathroom floors of several museums, feeling the cold tile underneath my cheek as my brain liquefied and seeped out my ear, bubbling. Migraines left my blood spreading across unfamiliar hotel sheets, dripping on the floors, oozing into carpets, soaking through leftover croissants and Italian lace cookies.”
“I suffer migraines, I do not suffer fools.”
“If you want to live where people aren’t afraid of mice, you have to leave the palace.”
Also, here is a green toothbrush tied in a ribbon.
It expresses my feelings inadequately..
